    Message of the Vice President on the Observance of Eid Ul Fitr

    To all our Muslim brothers and sisters, Eid Mubarak!

    As we mark the end of the holy month of Ramadan, may this be a time to reflect on the values that are deeply embedded in the fabric of your culture – your value for selfless sacrifice, your genuine compassion for others, and your spirit of generosity. You serve as great examples to the rest of the nation of how we embody hope by feeding the hungry, clothing the homeless, and comforting the orphaned.

    We pray for our brothers and sisters from Marawi, who are still suffering and unable to return to their homes for two years now since the siege.

    We continue to pray for peace in the Bangsamoro region, especially as it transitions into a new era.

    We also pray that beyond this year’s Eid ul Fitr, we will continue reaching out to the last, the least, and the lost among us – that in understanding and helping our people even at the cost of our personal comfort, we may truly find life and purpose.

    May you have a peaceful and meaningful celebration and may Allah bless you now and always!
